Xena in Brazil?[edit]

Since it's not cited I can't tell if this was part of a larger quote or what, but the lines: "There they entered the territory of the Amazons. A skirmish with these warrior women allegedly occurred on 24 June 1542" raise some eyebrows. What warrior women? Classical Amazons are a Grecian-Roman invention and their page makes no reference to any South American tribes. I understand there is some confusion due to the name but can anyone shed some light on this?

Untitled[edit]

He really named the Amazon River and was exploring for the country, spain. His name has a tick to it that you will not forget.

As his desendant I feel you should give more info about him. Have you guys seen the Spanish page of him? It is several times longer and I feel we should translate from it


I THINK THAT: that is a great idea.Awesomeness.Great idea,you're really tyte.

Essential information[edit]

Bushhopper, I have returned the sentence "He was one of Gonzalo Pizarro's lieutenants during his 1541 expedition east of Quito into the South American interior in search of El Dorado and the Country of the Cinnamon" to section "Explorations" from the first lines, because I think it is not the most essential information, as "He completed the first known navigation through the length of the Amazon River" actually is. Do you agree?

By the way, I am editing the article because I have just seen last Indiana Jones' movie, you too? ;) Tradewater (talk) 10:02, 27 May 2008 (UTC)

Disappearance?[edit]

The article List of people who disappeared mysteriously, lists him as having "disappeared while exploring the Amazon in November. His fate remains a mystery." This article purports to know his fate. Which is correct?--Auric (talk) 11:47, 30 April 2012 (UTC)
